Lesperides Products of Kos
“Lesperides” is a local – forgotten – word for the farmers. By using it we want to create a connection with the past and the traditional farming practices, without the use of unnecessary chemicals. It symbolises the respect for the old. The word “Lesperides” together with the illustrated plow create a logo that is well balanced and modern, and simultaneously bringing in mind the traditional character of the company.
Drosos family has its routes in Asia Minor, as most of the inhabitants of Kos Island have. For 3 generations now we keep using the traditional farming practices that were evolved through experience and pass from generation to generation.
Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our consumers by oﬀering the ﬁnest olive oil and traditional products. In order to achieve this goal we have instituted the strictest standards according to the European regulations and our quality system is certiﬁed by HACCP and ISO.
OLIVE OIL TESTING & FARM EXPERIENCE
Most people ignore the tasting process of olive oil as it can be tasted with two different senses; Not only with our mouth but also with our nose.
We will start with a walk in our estate, after which our guests will be able to taste olive oil, according to the official procedure using the appropriate blue glasses.
Throughout the summer you can participate in one of our cooking lessons. Learn about the local traditional cuisine, cook with vegetables that you personally pick up from our orchard and take something back that you can share with your family and friends.
